SING 2 is rounding out its cast with an impressive list of names. It has been announced that Bono, Letitia Wright, Pharrell Williams, Bobby Cannavale, Chelsea Peretti, Halsey, and Eric Andre have joined the vocal cast.
The newbies will be joining returning cast members that include Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, and Nick Kroll. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri had this to say about the sequel and its robust ensemble cast:
“Sing 2 transcends the animation genre, immersing audiences in a fully realized world populated by complex characters, each with bold aspirations and relatable challenges. We are thrilled that the Sing franchise attracts such exceptional talent, and we are delighted to announce this extraordinary cast.”
The first film followed a group of animals in a singing competition that is developed by a hustling theater impresario in an attempt to save his theater. Sing was positively reviewed by critics and became a sizable hit when it was released in December of 2016, grossing $634 million at the worldwide box office. The sequel finds Buster Moon (voiced by McConaughey) and his cast of underdogs pushing their talents beyond local theater with the hopes of performing at the most prestigious venue in the entertainment world.
